Battle Born PTA, a statewide PTA unit of Nevada Parent Teacher Association, is designed for business leaders, community leaders/members, and concerned citizens across Nevada who wish to have an impact in the lives of children in our Silver State. We welcome students and families whose own local schools are not PTA affiliates and want to support and participate in PTA. Joining Battle Born PTA allows you to add your voice to the thousands of PTA members across Nevada. Together we will ensure every child is provided opportunities to reach their full potential.

Through our partnerships and select employer agreements with both Mountain America Credit Union and America First Credit Union we are over 5,000 members strong.  Anyone is welcome to join and we welcome volunteers.  Connect with Battle Born PTA on Facebook or email us.
